adidas heritage reborn.

adidas is re-designing some of its most classic looks with its newest technology for the end of FY2015. The collection will be released into four different lines : ”Xeno,” “Athleisure,” “Primeknit,” and “#/3F15,” each with its own release date: the #/3F15 up first on November 28, followed by the Xeno pack hitting stores on December 5. The Athleisure pack releases on both December 19 and January 16 for the release of the Primeknit pack.

Each line will include a combination of sneaker looks as well as new apparel following the same idea: classic meets modern technology and innovation.

Check out some shots direct from the lookbook below:

 

Adidas has been really good lately about creating looks that are both functional and fashionable. I've always been a loyal nike guy but it might be time to try this adidas thing.

white trainers for fall.

white an cream trainers are the trend for fall. Even if you're wearing black on black on black, it's okay to replace one of those blacks with white or cream trainers for a change. Like a black on black on white situation. here are some examples:

the flight jacket.

also known as the bomber jacket, the flight jacket is this fall's trending style. Originally designed to keep pilot's warm during flight time, the jacket goes back as far as 1917. The flight jacket can come in a million different looks, fabrics, and styles, but should always have the same fit and features: shorter length, a shorter collar that does not fold down, and a roomier fit. check out some examples before running out to find one that fits your look.

Hardy Amies Snowdon 2015.

 

This small adventure,
In that wild place and at the dead of night,
On we wound,
With forehead bent Earthward,
As in opposition set against an enemy,
With eager pace, and no less eager thoughts.

‘Snowdon’ by W.Wordsworth

 

“Wordsworth’s poem is a story about a battle between ‘man’ and ‘the mountain’. This combined with a more literal colour study of Turner’s palette, formed the beginning of my own story about Mount Snowdon: a modern man’s ascent of the mountain.”

- Mehmet Ali, Creative Director

USA kits 2015.

The USA soccer away and alternate kits have been released by nike. I'm not sure how I feel about them yet, but I can at least say that I'm happy they're branching out and trying new things with them. Last year's world cup kits and this year's international kits are far different than they have been in previous years and I dig that. Take a look and tell us what you think.

and the alternate kit:

Now if only we could ditch that terrible U.S. soccer crest for something that looks like an adult would wear it as opposed to a 7 year old.

The New rules of masculinity.

Menswear tends to oppose social changes. That’s to say that designers tend to work in contrast to the uniforms we’re meant to wear. Take tailoring, for example: at the start of the decade, as office dress codes relaxed in reaction to the world’s wealthiest and most powerful men sporting hoodies to multi-billion dollar IPOs, razor-sharp tailoring and double-monks suddenly became the style-conscious gent’s preferred attire. It wasn’t what was necessary, or expected. But then fashion always seeks out difference.

Five years on, and the contestants on The Apprentice – men whose unofficial role is to mark when a trend has joined bootcut jeans in sartorial purgatory – turned up in Lord Alan Sugar’s office sporting pocket squares (matched to their neck wear, naturally), tie bars (unattached to their shirt plackets) and ankle-bearing suits. Meaning? It’s probably time to stow yours in the back of wardrobe.

Your replacement though, is equally contradictory. With most men chained to desks, designers are harking back to a more masculine era, when clothes were about protecting you from sparks and grease. Enter functional fabrics and heavy duty jackets that look like you could weld in them.

These days, your inspiration isn’t a man who knows fifteen different neck tie knots, but one who can fix a gearbox. Here’s how to evict Beau Brummell from your wardrobe to make way for James Dean.

The key to making this look work is opting for classic designs. “A timeless piece is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.”

“Simplicity is what has made that iconic style and shape endure” – so don’t be tempted by avant-garde silhouettes or patterns. Stick to the classics and you’ll be able to wear that bank balance-bruising purchase a decade from now, rather than regretfully trying to recoup your outlay on eBay when trends inevitably change.

oscar wear.

Some looks from the awards this weekend + my thoughts. A lot of revivals of classic looks in menswear. I'm a fan. 

 

 

Love this. Love the deep burgundy vest and tuxedo coat with black lapels coinciding with the slim black trousers. I like the barely showing white pocket square and the freshly polished cap-toe shoes. Clean haircut and a bowtie that is not overly large and obnoxious. Clean. Nailed it.


Classic white tuxedo looks great. classic black suit is clean. Pharrell's spring suit (yes that's a thing) would make sense if we were in spring, or if he had more athletic legs. The shoes are excellentand the low-button suit fits well, but the shorts don't necessarily match the occasion.

Killed it.

I love classic styles, and you really can't go wrong with a black tuxedo. However, something about the fit of this jacket looks a bit off. I understand that he has become an enormous man from the Captain America series, but the shoulders don't sit quite right. There's a bit of an upward slope at the end of the shoulders that puts me off. The pique lapels are also a bit large for my tastes. It should look more like this:

Suit on point. Hair on point. Watch....questionable. Feels a bit forced and out of place compared to the rest of the classic look. I would've picked something with a more classic feel. Maybe black leather or silver. 

stark white tuxedo with the hair and beard of a mountain man and a massive umbrella. I dig it. Just don't love the shoes. 

yup yup yup.

A black suit that's too tight (see the pucker in the chest) with a back tuxedo shirt and an ultra-hipster gold chain? Trying a little too hard to fit in with the younger crowd. This was not executed well. 

modern take on a classic. That black pocket lining is excellent. Yes.
